Cirencester Travel Guide
The town centre is dominated by the architectural glory of the Church of St. John the Baptist, towering above the picturesque market place and a warren of small narrow streets, including Spitalgate with the remains of a 12th century almshouse. Just behind the market place Brewery Arts is the Cotswolds unique arts and crafts centre and is one of Cirencesterís major attractions.
The Abbey grounds close to the town centre offer a tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Whilst the Abbey is long gone there is still a standing section of Roman wall, but for a real Roman treat one has to make the short journey to Chedworth home of Englandís best preserved Roman Villa.
Just to the south of Cirencester is The Cotswold Water Park, a collection of 132 former sand and gravel pits forming the largest man made water complex in Britain. Now fully landscaped some of the lakes are used for just about every form of water based recreation from angling to power boating, others are set aside as nature and conservation areas.
